This amazingly beautiful water clear Ascension Star Pendant is crowned with a sparkling, highly faceted lavender-blue Trillion cut Tanzanite gemstone, and offers tremendous protection & connection to the Higher Self. It is set into a sterling silver setting which allows the stone to breath, and hangs on its sterling silver chain right on the thymus between the throat and the heart chakras, offering protection to the whole body resonating through the compassionate heart.
The Ascension Star cut assists us in bringing in the energy of the Divine and grounding it into our earlthy experience. As our daily experiences are touched and guided by this Divine energy we raise our vibrational frequency to move into harmony with all of creation. This unique tool is fashioned to assist us along our path of conscious evolution - "ascension" from the everyday consciousness of separation marked by dominion of the egoistic personality and into the higher realms of unity consciousness.
Tanzanite is a blue-violet variety of the metamorphic mineral zoisite, hard and heavy with a vitreous luster. Tanzanite is a stone of magic, activating the crown chakra and assisting the bearer in developing clairvoyant and clairaudient abilities. Because of its blue-violet color, Tanzanite is thought to activate and energize the throat and crown chakras, associated with the colors blue and violet in the Western chakra system.
Tanzanite is said to strengthen the will forces and thus assists in manifestation, strengthening our connection with spiritual guidance and balancing energy within the auric system and the physical body.
Tanzanite was used by Celtic chiefs during rituals of succession, and is believed to facilitate contact with the spiritual lineages of the Celts and indigenous peoples around the world as well as stimulating connections with otherworldly beings.
From personal experience meditating with Tanzanite, I have found that even a tiny Tanzanite gemstone provides a strong flow of Violet Flame energy, comparable to the flow from a much larger amethyst.
The combination of Tanzanite & Clear Quartz is an excellent tool for connecting all of the chakras & aligning Higher Self with the Divine in our earthly incarnation!
The word crystal comes from the Greek word "krystallos", meaning ice. The Greeks found quartz crystals high in the frigid Alpine mountains, and Pliny (c. 62-113 A.D.), the foremost historian and mineralogist of his time, believed quartz crystal was ice that had frozen so hard it would never thaw.
One common legend is that crystals were originally heaven's holy water, poured out by God into the aethers. As the holy quintessence descended toward the Earth, it froze into ice in outer space, where it was petrified into permanent solidity by angels so that when it fell to Earth it would be available permanently for the protection and blessing of mankind. [See Rock Crystal: Nature's Holy Stone, by Frank Dorland]
Quartz is the low-temperature stable form of silicon dioxide or silica.Silicon and oxygen are the two most common elements in the Earth's crust.Quartz crystal is perhaps the most common mineral found on the face of the Earth. Sand and sandstone are considered clastic forms of quartz by mineralogists, meaning that they are formed of fragments of pre-existing rocks.
Quartz crystals have been used by healers, spiritual teachers, and scientists of the sacred throughout history to receive, transmit, store, focus, amplify, transform and balance the various forms of energy found in our Universe, all of which can be considered to be interchangeable forms of Universal Light.
Quartz crystals have this marvelous ability because, metaphysically, quartz crystal expresses the unity of the five elements (Earth,Air, Fire, Water, and Ether or Spirit). Crystals grow deep in the earth and form much of the earth's crust, yet crystals, like the element air, allow light to pass through them. Crystals are fiery in that they have piezoelectric properties yet they are watery in their hexagonal molecular structure which resembles snowflakes, and in their ice-like appearance. Crystals are quintessential expressions of the element of Ether or Spirit, which is synonymous with Universal Life Force Energy, the fundamental energy that sustains all forms of energy in the known universe.
Thus crystals represent the unity that underlies the apparent multiplicity of material creation, the unity of both material and spiritual worlds.
From a metaphysical viewpoint, quartz crystals are cosmic tuning forks, harmonizing the soul, mind, heart and body of the user with the vibrational frequencies of Spiritual worlds which are after all simply realms of light resonating at a much higher frequency than the material world.
Native Americans revere quartz crystals as the brain cells of Grandmother Earth. Viewing the Earth as a living organism, primitive stones such as granite and sandstone comprise the skeleton of the organism, the Earth's crust is the skin. Vegetation and water channels make up the lifeblood of Earth's body, and metals and minerals function as glands, nerves and sensory organs.
The shining water that moves in the streams and rivers is not just water, but the blood of our ancestors, Chief Seattle explained. If we sell you our land, you must remember that it is sacred. Each ghostly reflection in the clear waters of the lakes tells of events and memories in the lives of my people. The water's murmur is the voice of my father's father. The rivers are our brothers, They quench our thirst. They carry our canoes and feed our children. So you must give to the rivers the kindness you would give any brother.
Quartz crystals, in this worldview, act as the Earth's brain-mind, through which Spirit, the Universal Mind, maintains communication with all parts of Earth's organism, equilibrating the earth's temperature, moisture levels, and other important variables. In addition, quartz crystals and other gemstones collectively create and modulate an electromagnetic field around the Earth, which is a vital component of the Earth organisms auric field, and clear quartz crystals, identified with white light, represent the unifying vibrational frequency that harmonizes the seven rainbow rays of Earth's many varieties of gems and minerals, within that auric field.
Thus in the Native American tradition, any human being who can attune to the power of the quartz crystal is in tune with Grandmother Earth, and obtains the ability to communicate directly with Spiritual worlds.
